Forza Motorsports 5 and Hydro Thunder Hurricane are now free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers

Xbox Live Gold subscribers can now grab the first round of September Games with Gold titles, which are Forza Motorsports 5: Racing Game of the Year Edition and the Xbox 360 title Hydro Thunder Hurricane. The first game was a launch title for the Xbox back in November 2013, while the second one (also backward compatible on the Xbox One) is a boat racing video game from the developers of the popular Riptide GP series. You can find official descriptions, video trailers and download links for both games below.
